When the C64 is lacking one thing, it's a modern command line interface. I mean, the thing comes with a shell - kind of. But the BASIC prompt was not enough for Chiron Bramberger, because especially drive and file management, starting programs in memory, viewing RAM and starting Turbo Macro Pro can be easily done in his shell.

ChiCLI is a stroke of genius and even if Bash and Z-Shell play in a completely different league, this tool is a real enrichment for the little Commodore.

I wonder if the whole thing wouldn't fit in perfectly with Gregorio Naçu's C64 OS? 🧐

Definitely check it out!
